GOVERNORS UNIVERSITY GETS PRESTIGOUS AWARD

  WESTERN GOVERNORS UNIVERSITY GETS KOWSITALL AWARD!

Knowital AwardThey certainly have been trying to earn this award for academic arrogance. After nearly two years I still can not get answers to questions from any source that supports Western Governors University about how WGU even qualifies as a university while apparently having little or no faculty.

a. What is WGU’s real graduation rate?
b. How does WGU make money?
c. Are the WGU Bachelors degrees valid?
d. Do WGU grads get jobs?

What arrogance …. degrees in nursing, computer science, biology (teaching that is) … all free of the annoyance of a faculty!

Perhaps you might ask Rep Kenney is she knows more?  Ms. Kenney sponsored this bill to have an out of state, non profit, online “university” recognized as part of Washington state’s highly rated system of higher education. I may be wrong, but what I read causes me to be very worried that this bill could hurt our colleges and the students who need higher ed.
